Kentucky Official: All The State’s Bourbon Wouldn’t Make Fed Voter Demand Seem Sensible

Several states are not only flatly changing down demands for voter message from President Donald Trump‘s board probing” election stability ,” but are doing so with any particular fierce panache.

In a particularly blistering statement, Kentucky’s Democratic Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes said there’s” not enough bourbon here in Kentucky to make this asking seem sensible .”

Grimes concluded the comment on MSNBC Friday, the same day Mississippi’s Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann said he’d tell Kris Kobach, vice chairman of Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, to” go jump in the Gulf of Mexico .”

Virginia’s Democratic Gov. Terry McAuliffe called the request “silly,” while other state officials explosion the “waste” of taxpayer fund for an investigation into what New York’s Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo called Trump’s “debunked” ideology of poll fraud.

Kobach moved a letter Wednesday to every country demanding voter data, which include lists, addresses, birthdays and partial Social security systems digits, among other intelligence. So far, at the least 20 countries have refused to supply some or all of the information, speaking the request is illegal, obtrusive or unnecessary.

” Not on my watch are we going to be releasing confidential information that relates to the privacy of individuals ,” Grimes said here on MSNBC.” Not on my watch are we going to be using an … unsecured web site. They wanted us to actually upload this sensitive message — Americans’ Social Security numerals, their years of delivery .”

Grimes has written immediately to Kobach suggesting she has no intention of exhausting” Kentuckians’ feelings personal data to the federal government .”

” The director appointed his election commission based on the incorrect notion that’ voter scam’ is a widespread concern. It is not ,” she added.

Trump slammed regimes in a tweet Saturday for refusing to release the information to his administration, questioning,” What are they trying to hide ?”
